monday makeup finds

Hello friends! Welcome to the start of a new week. Should I mention anything about the #VMAS from last night? How about #KanyeForPresident, Miley's crazy outfit changes, and the return of Taylor Swift's squad? I definitely suggest you watch it to see all the hype! Anyway, I have gathered a few new beauty items that I wanted to share with you today. These have been some of my newest and most loved makeup finds!

Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara I was looking for a new drugstore waterproof mascara and I found this one on sale at Walgreen for less than $3! I was happily impressed by the mascara's ability to last throughout the school day and I liked the length it gave my lashes. I did not need to re-apply it at all and it was overall a great buy.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Even though I just got this as a part of the Sephora reward system, {I used 100 points to redeem it!} I already love this product. I was surprised when I saw that it was a tinted color instead of a gel-like consistency but I still tried it out the other day. The results I found were great! The product smoothed over my pores and made my makeup look more flawlessly covered. It also made my face look more matte, which is great for oily skin types. 

Maybelline Brow Define + Fill For some reason I seriously love using Maybelline brow tools! I have used this one before and also this one, so I wasn't too afraid to try out this new brow pencil. The pencil is very thin which I think works out well for me because my eyebrows are not too thick. One tip: don't over do it! Start this product out with light strokes so you don't end up with extremely drawn out brows. The smudgy side of the pencil is fabulous for creating a more unified look to your brows. Maybelline has done it right yet again!

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien When you sign up for the Sephora reward system, you enter your birthday which enables you to get free things during your birthday month! It's honestly one of my favorite things to do during February, and I try to get to Sephora on the very first day of the month. During the past year, they were giving out NARS lipsticks! I had never tried this line before and I was thrilled to receive two lip products. This one I love in particular because of it's creamy {or how they describe it as 'satin'} texture. The color is a dark rosy pink which goes well with my light skin tone and reddish hair color! 

Thanks so much for reading today's makeup finds! I hope you have a wonderful week ahead. I am trying to create some sort of posting schedule to make my life have more of a routine, so I know what days I should be uploading content! I'll keep you updated, but for now make sure to follow me on the social media platforms below.
